A baby and a driver of a van had a lucky escape, when the van, driven by electrician, James Barnes, overturned onto the pavement in Plane Street, Blackburn.

The picture from our 1969 archives, shows emergency services and passers-by trying to push the van back onto all four wheels.

Fortunately, the baby’s pram was a few yards away rom the van, and Mr Barnes escaped unscathed.
